Well we did it! We FINALLY settled on a location and venue for the 2015 Saab Owners' Convention (SOC). SCNA Board member Daniel Cahill took the leadership challenge to poll various audiences in social media, gathering feedback, talking to SOC attendees and sponsors in Oregon, listening to local clubs in the Midwest and after countless hours considering the drive from all points north, south east and west, before he was ready to make the suggestion.
SOC 2015 will be held in Lexington, KY at the crossroads of I64 and I75 – well known for horse farms and horse racing, where all backroads lead to bourbon distilleries and offers scenic drives through gorgeous countryside. We are now at work negotiating with the host hotel for pricing and coordinating the details to execute the event. Mark your calendars now for August 13 – 16, 2015, the Griffin Gate Marriott will be out host property and has all of the features we wanted to host a terrific event.
There are numerous Saab events going on this fall, many are celebrating all of the new OSC’s that have been certified by ORIO to continue to provide service to our vehicles. If you have an event you would like SCNA to help support, feel free to contact us via any of the email addresses listed on the Club website. We are happy to help local clubs facilitate meetings and get togethers.
PS: Follow the club on Facebook and SAABnet for more Convention details as they become available.
